SORT BY Relevancy
Position by position we are going to answer some of your questions as well as talk about who you should draft and perhaps who you should stay away from. This week we will tackle the "other" guys. Guys people do not always put much thought into but who are still very important.
In this episode of Fantasy Freeway; presented by The Red Light Sports Network, sponsored by CoverThatSpread.com, the RLSN hosts will talk about Kickers and Special Teams. Yes, it has to be done, kickers can get you some points so what should you look for in a kicker and what can a special teams unit do to help you win a championship. Fasten your seat belts and put your foot on the gas, the hosts talk Fantasy Football and more on this episode.
We heading to week 5 of the NFL season. And of course, the season has had no controversy.
We will bat around the latest.
We'll talk about some horrible kicking. And we’re not talking just extra points – but field goals.
We will run down this week's big games. And we'll check out your fantasy.
Joining me – as always -- is Eric Snyder, our NFL expert. He is the author of a book on the Raiders and Raider Nation. You can also hear him on the Power Hour on Fox Sports Radio 1340 in Vegas.
Two big take-aways:
First the controversial call. The officials blew it on the field. Instant replay needs to be changed. And players need to know the rules. When I saw the ball pushed out, I thought wait where is Dave Caspar?
There were some other controversial calls. I thought the fumble by Travis Kelcie was a weird call. Do we allow for instant replay during the whole game and take it out of the hands of the coaches?
Second big take-away from last week was the fabulous coaching. I look at Jeff Fisher who turned around the Rams to beat the Cardinals. I look at what Chuck Pagano did to get the Colts in the win column without Andrew Luck. I look at Tom Coughlin who has the Giants back on track. Or is this league just so competitive that each week it's a difficult to put two wins back to back?
Third take-away: horrible kicking. Josh Scobee has already been released by the Steelers. One article said Scobee had made fun of Tiger’s chipping yips and karma came back to get him. But is it the new extra point rule causing Field Golf problems?
There were some other controversial calls. I thought the fumble by Travis Kelcie was a weird call.
The Expedia 2015 Airplane Etiquette Study just released this month (November) found that 59% of Americans believe “Inattentive Parents” – parents who exhibit little or no control over their children – are the 2nd most aggravating co-passengers.
The number 1 most aggravating? “Rear Seat Kickers.” And since kids tend to be the biggest culprits, parents are feeling the pressure here, too, when it comes to travelling.Additionally, social shaming has become a reality, according to the survey. A quick glance at #UnrulyKids and you’ll find many of the social media posts originate from airports and airplanes.But with holiday family vacations creating some of the best memories for children and their parents, what can we do to make the travel experience awesome for all involved?
Live via satellite from Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Travel Expert (and mother of four) Sarah Gavin is available to discuss: How parents can enhance their attentiveness while on the road during the busiest travel season of the year. What her personal survey of children revealed about how parents change on vacation.Additional findings from the 2015 Airplane Etiquette Study
We heard you did a study about the most annoying people on planes. Who came in as most annoying and what to do you do this holiday if you’re stuck next to them? Or if you’re one of them?
That looks like the Disney castle behind you. What’s new at Disney this holiday season? How can families save money this holiday? Do you have any tips and tricks on when to buy, when to travel. Any other news in advance of the holiday travel season?Where can our viewers for go for more information?
